How to Manage Power Supply

This section provides users basic safety precautions to take when using an AC/DC adapter and battery power properly.

AC/DC Adapter

To safely and properly power on a notebook, it is strongly recommended to connect the supplied power adapter before turning it on for the first time. Below are some

Do's and Don'ts of an AC/DC adapter.

▶ DOs

• Use the adapter that shipped with your notebook only.

• Always be aware of heat coming from the in use AC/DC adapter.

• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio TV technician for help.

▶ DON'Ts

• Use other adapter of other brand since it may damage the notebook or devices attached to it.

• Cover an in-use adapter since it can generate heat.

Battery Power

This notebook is equipped with a high-capacity Li-Polymer battery pack. The rechargeable Li-Polymer battery pack is an internal power source of the notebook.

Be aware of that this battery pack may not be replaced by users.

▶ Conserving Battery Power

Efficient battery power is critical to maintain normal operation. If the battery power is not managed well, the saved data and customized settings may be lost. To optimize battery life and avoid a sudden power loss, read the tips below:

• Suspend system operation if the system will be idle for a while or shorten the suspend timer’s time period.

• Turn off the system if you won’t be using it for a period of time.

• Disable unnecessary settings or remove idle peripherals.

• Connect an AC/DC adapter to the system whenever possible.


▶ Charging the Battery Pack

The battery pack can be recharged while it is installed in the notebook. Please pay attention to the following tips before recharging the battery:

• If a charged battery pack is not available, save your work and close all running programs and shut down the system.

• Plug in an external AC/DC adapter.

• You can use the system, suspend system operation or shut down and turn off the system without interrupting the charging process.

• The Li-Polymer battery has no memory effect. It is unnecessary to discharge the battery before recharging. However, to optimize the life of battery, we suggest that consuming the battery power completely once a month is necessary.

• The actual charging time will be determined by the applications in use.

What is Touchpad

The touchpad integrated in your notebook is a pointing device that is compatible with standard mouse, allowing you to control the notebook by pointing the location of the cursor on the screen .

▶ Configuring the Touchpad

You can customize the pointing device to meet your personal needs. For example, if you are a left-handed user, you may want to swap the functions of the two buttons. In addition, you can change the size, shape, moving speed and other advanced features of the cursor on the screen.

To configure the touchpad, you can use the standard Microsoft or IBM PS/2 driver in your Windows operating system. The Mouse Properties in Control

Panel allows you to change the configuration.

▶ Positioning and Moving

Place your finger on the touchpad (usually using the forefinger), and the rectangular pad will act as a miniature duplicate of your display. When you move your fingertip across the pad, the cursor on the screen will move simultaneously to the same direction. When your finger reaches the edge of the pad, lift your finger and place it on a proper location of the touchpad to continue the movement.


▶ Point and Click

When you have moved and placed the cursor over an icon, a menu item or a command that you want to execute, simply tap slightly on the touchpad or press the left button to select. This procedure, called as point and click is the basics of operating your notebook. Unlike the traditional pointing device such as the mouse, the whole touchpad can act as a left button, so that your each tap on the touchpad is equivalent to pressing the left button. Tapping twice more rapidly on the touchpad is to execute a double-click.

▶ Drag and Drop

You can move files or objects in your notebook by using drag-and-drop. To do so, place the cursor on the desired item and slightly tap twice on the touchpad, and then keep your fingertip in contact with the touchpad on the second tap.

Now, you can drag the selected item to the desired location by moving your finger on the touchpad, and then lift your finger from the touchpad to drop the item into place. Alternately, you can press and hold the left button when you select an item, and then move your finger to the desired location; finally, release the left button to finish the drag-and-drop operation.
